Also referred to as ‘Park West’ the Bankers Hill area is a historic, uptown neighborhood located near Balboa Park in San Diego, California. Bordered to the north by the neighborhood Hillcrest, to the south by Downtown San Diego, to the east by Balboa Park and the west by Interstate 5 and the Little Italy neighborhood. With just the right blend of historic and urban this popular neighborhood was named “Bankers Hill” because of its reputation for being the home to the affluent. There are numerous historic houses dating back to the 1800s that have since been restored into businesses, office suites and bed-and-breakfast inns. Although the area is predominantly residential, in recent years the area has seen urban development with the construction of luxury apartments and condos.
The historic Spruce Street Suspension Bridge that was built in 1912 lies above Kate Sessions Canyon and is potentially the best known secret in the Bankers Hill neighborhood.
